Brief biography

Nan Cheng received the B.E. degree and the M.S. degree from the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering, Tongji University, Shanghai, China, in 2009 and 2012, respectively. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, under the supervision of Prof. Xuemin (Sherman) Shen.

His current research interests include performance analysis, MAC, opportunistic communication for vehicular networks. He also does reseach on cognitive radio, WiFi, smart grid, and cellular traffic offloading.. [My Google Scholar]
